Publisher's Description

Build detailed and impressive models of world landmarks with this beautiful origami book.

The incredible splendors of some of the worlds' most recognized architectural feats are brought to life within the pages of Origami Architecture. With this paper craft book, some card stock paper, and a hobby knife, anyone can build spectacular re-creations of the most famous buildings in the world.

Based on the extraordinary models of world-renowned papercrafter, and origami artist Yee, whose own remarkable origami recreations of these very same models sell for thousands of dollars, these paper replicas are nearly as impressive as the original buildings. Yee provides detailed instructions on how to cut and assemble these architectural landmarks from around the world. Yee even engineered half of these designs so they could be assembled without having to use glue. The origami projects have a range of difficulty levels, from the relatively easy (Arc d'Triomphe) to the impressively sophisticated and intricate (The Tower Bridge). Once the structure is attached to the base not only will does it look amazing, but it can be folded up and taken anywhere.

This origami book includes:
  • Over 900 photographs
  • Full-color instructional assembly diagrams
  • Brief histories of each building
  • CD with detailed templates
For the would-be architect, the paper craft hobbyist, or a model builder, Origami Architecture will provide hours of activity with impressive results.

Origami projects include:
  • Arc de Triomphe
  • Leaning Tower of Pisa
  • Hall of Supreme Harmony
  • White House
  • National Centre for the Performing Arts China
  • Sydney Opera House
  • Eiffel Tower
  • And many more…

Editorial Reviews

"Want a challenge? Most people are familiar with folded paper origami cranes or napkin swans. Some paper folders have graduated to folding elephants, crabs or geometric shapes. Then there are true papercraft artists whose creations are above and beyond a hobbyist's skill. In this case, you have Yee. Origami Architecture is for anyone who aspires to be the type of artist who is meticulous, exacting and fascinated by complexity." —McClatchy Newspapers
"What's notable about these paper replicas is how much detail that plain white paper can illuminate. When you strip away the model's materiality, the simple interface of light and shade highlights the striking beauty of the buildings' architectural outlines. That such intricate crafts can be folded flat only adds to their mystery." —Architect magazine
"Discover: A perfect gift for architects, aspiring world travelers or papercrafting fans." —Shelf Awareness for Readers
"You'll feel like an architect as you experience a structure taking shape beneath your fingertips!" —All Things Paper blog
